Tokyo Drinking Alley | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #17

This one is not really part of an animated film, but rather one shot we created to try and capture an feeling or memory. Something which brings you back to a moment or place. Maybe the end of a night of drinking too much in a drinking alley, one of things in Japan that are so much part of the city life. Hopefully you can transport yourself there for a brief moment, or even relate…

Anima 2019: Award & Review

We were very surprised and honored our animated short won the RTBF – La Trois Award at Anima 2019 this past weekend. Thanks to the festival and everyone who helped and supported us in creating this film!

Branchés Culture saw our film there, and wrote a little review in French. It roughly translates to:

“A superb project that addresses the problem of bullying among young people. Very nice drawings, a careful realization and a surprising fall make this project a great success. A movie to show to young and old alike.”

Next time you can catch our film will be next Saturday, at Athens Animfest.
